Registration is now open for the 7th Annual Progressive Education Summit on Saturday, January 27th.  The Summit is our annual conference with over 40 workshops, 3 master classes, a delicious lunch, and this year a resource fair and ignite talks.

Why come to the Summit? There are so many reasons! Just to get us started, here are the top three reasons to come to the Summit this year:

#1
Because you are an educator who wants to keep learning. You see children as powerful, capable, and worthy of the deepest respect, and you are determined to continually hone your skills, build your network and create for yourself an environment of learning, growth and well being.

#2.
Because you love to hear from inspirational people. Keynote Ron Ritchhart is an important thought leader and you enjoy hearing from people in the field. You will come away with new ideas, new practices, new connections.  You want to be around folks who know how to put theory into practice and believe things like this:

“A culture of thinking produces the feelings, energy, and even joy that can propel learning forward and motivate us to do what at times can be hard and challenging mental work.”

― Ron Ritchhart, Creating Cultures of Thinking: The 8 Forces We Must Master to Truly Transform Our Schools

#3.
You know that in the midst of the winter days it will be wonderful to gather at the Summit.  You will be at City Neighbors with hundreds of educators, non profits, parents, students, and more…and feel the warmth of being with so many people who care passionately about teaching and learning. We need each other.

Why come to the Progressive Ed Summit?
Because the revolution won’t happen without you.
As Sir Ken Robinson points out in his book, Creative Schools, a revolution is underway to compel districts and states to give schools the power to transform themselves. He writes, “Although education is now a global issue, it is inevitably a grassroots process. Understanding that is the key to transformation. The world is undergoing revolutionary changes; we need a revolution in education too. Like most revolutions, this one had been brewing for a long time, and in many places it is already well underway. It is not coming from the top down; it is coming, as it must do, from the ground, up. ” (p. Xxvi)
Here’s how to spot the revolution around you. Think of the best schools you know. Who is making decisions? Who is engaged in creating that school? Where is the spark, the inspiration, the love? It’s happening in classrooms, hallways, parking lots, committee meetings and staff meetings. It’s happening in on-the-ground conversations with people who live and work every day with children and families — at the grassroots.
Grassroots transformation is what The Annual Progressive Education Summit is all about.
Each year, we gather at the Summit to exchange ideas, be inspired, make connections, and grow our community. We are like a flash mob, a self-forming community that is represented by folks across many sectors who want to transform themselves and their schools from the ground, up.
This year, we want you to join us. Come share the work you are doing. Come learn what others are working on. Come hear Susan Engle speak on curiosity and children’s ideas. Be part of the revolution!
Already coming to the Summit? Great! Tell folks why in the comment below.

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
